It is great when a young person can live at home with their family, but this is not always possible. Family breakdowns, bereavement, leaving care; there are many reasons why a young person may find themselves without a place to stay.
A safe place to call home is possibly the most critical thing which young people who are in crisis might need.
That’s where Young Devon come in. When a young person can no longer live at home, or they find themselves homeless, we work with them to find out what accommodation best suits their needs.
We are here to help young people to develop resilience; this is much harder to do without the sense of security that a place to call home offers. If we can stop a young person from becoming homeless, we will do everything that we can to do that. But when that hasn’t worked, we are committed to improving the range, quality and amount of accommodation that we can offer to young people.
One of our most profound challenges is to support young people in very chaotic situations. There is an expectation that we can help them develop a sense of stability and independence in less than a year, or eighteen months, even when the situations which have brought about that sense of chaos may have persisted for years, or even a lifetime.
Our Accommodation services promote choice, and allow us to spend a longer period of time supporting young people to successful independent living.
